Excerpt from Under the Red Cross Flag at Home and Abroad
Whenever war or serious calamity arouses universal interest in the Red Cm the requests for information increase a hundred fold, and at the same time the mem bers of its stafi are overwhelmed with duties that active relief measures bring upon them. Notwithstanding the fact that Qm' s'czcuse s'aocuse, the writer believes it not unfair to say that Under the Red Cross Flag has been written at such a time of stress and during long drawn-out pressure of work, with many attendant prob lems and anxieties. No cfiert has been made to produce a detailed and complete history of the organization here or elsewhere. Such would require years of study and scores of volumes, for which there was neither time nor ability, and for which the general public has no desire. By this labor of love the hope has been rather to place brieﬂy and simply before the American people something of the fiery of the Red Cross, its origin, development, especially in our own country, and its services for humanity.
